Top Ten Music Artists That Have Helped People

I'll admit I have a very narrow music taste, but as far as artists that have truly helped their fans get through hard times… here's what I've seen or heard from people. No need for anyone to bash on the genres here - talk about the artists themselves, and how they've been a part of your life. So no negativity please!

The Top Ten

1 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

My Chemical Romance was one of the most important bands of our generation. It's astonishing how a song can change someone's view of the world. How they can make a suicidal person re-think and help people through tough times. The thing that I love about My Chemical Romance is the fact that they understand things that no other adults that I know understand. Their song "Teenagers", for example. It's about most adults view of us, like we're some kind of animals, and then Gerard singing about how they're wrong and that he understands us. Every single song has a great concept, but because they're super intelligent and talented, sometimes you have to dig deep to find out the purpose of the song. Gerard's voice has so much emotion in it, I have never heard anything like it. They're just completely amazing, both on and off-stage.

The MCRmy is like a family, making a statement. It's all about empowerment, anti-suicide, and facing your fears. Any My Chemical Romance fan can easily explain what songs like "Famous Last Words" did for them. In many cases, My Chem's songs have saved lives. It's astonishing what the lyrics this band made did for people. My Chemical Romance fans - remember when people always said Gerard promoted suicide? Remember pulling out your iPod, and playing "Famous Last Words" for those detractors? Seeing the looks on their faces when they heard the chorus. Anybody who's really gotten into My Chemical Romance will understand this. Even just going to their shows was a wonderful, empowering experience. - ThatStrangeKid42

Michael Jackson was a singer, songwriter, producer, choreographer, entertainer and humanitarian. He donated (at least) a remarkable 300,000,000 dollars to charity.

His music is a real escape. His lyrics and messages are pure and genuine. - ThatStrangeKid42

He helped people by making Neverland Ramch and bringing little kids over and have some happy fun! *sarcasm* - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Marshall knows how life can be tough, and his lyrics reflect that. Don't you dare censor this man. He speaks the flat-out truth, whether you want to accept it or not. One of the most emotional and passionate music artists ever, especially in a genre that seems to lack those qualities these days. - ThatStrangeKid42

He may have cussed and sweared a lot but his lyrics have inspired me not to give up and carry on with my life

I'm personally not a fan, but it takes a lot of loyalty to your fans to get a fan base as devoted as the Directioners. These people will defend 1D with a passion, and there's a good reason why.

P.S. to SS fans: Don't get so worked up. Not all Directioners insulted Mitch, it was just a few stupid ones. I'm an SS fan myself, so understand what I'm saying please. - ThatStrangeKid42

I, personally, have never listened to her, but she's getting a lot of attention lately. Most of it very positive. I know someone's going to put this on the list if I don't, so I'll put her here so she's in a higher spot, in the Top 10. Her fans can comment their own stuff here. I don't know much about her, but her popularity definitely earns her a spot here. - ThatStrangeKid42
